Ethiopian Airlines will extend its free transit tour to global passengers as of February 1, 2019.

The new complimentary city tour package organised by ET Holidays, the tour operator wing of Ethiopian Airlines, takes transiting passengers with 6 to 8 hours’ time in the running capital, Addis Ababa, on a journey through one of the landmarks of the city, The National Museum, accompanied with a taste of Ethiopian Coffee and souvenir shopping at affordable prices and make them experience the unique flavours of the political capital of Africa during their brief stay.

Regarding the initiative, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam, remarked, “As travel has gone digital with our innovative technology
solutions including Ethiopia Mobile App and online platforms, the huge influx of transit passengers in Addis Ababa, the world’s gateway to Africa, can enjoy personalized and endto- end travel experience. Ethiopian Mobile App enables passengers to secure their visa electronically within 4 hours from any part of the world, as well as book their flights, pay online using credit or debit cards, mobile money, e-Wallet and bank transfer, check-in and
issue boarding pass seamlessly.

As we continue to discover and deliver the best for our customers, we are pleased to come up with complementary offerings to our global transiting passengers and make them savour every moment and feel the real taste of Addis Ababa during their brief stay.

While promoting Ethiopia, Land of Origins, and its beautiful capital Addis Ababa alike, as tourist destinations, we will keep promoting initiatives tailored to provide our ever growing customer with a unique and unforgettable travel experience.”
